I just had to make another “treat bag” using the Little Debbie Snack Cakes. This one is the soft gingerbread man cookie. I just added another cardstock topper to give it a more personal touch. The gingerbread man was stamped with a retired Stampin’ Up! set. The designer paper is Jolly and Bright from Heidi Grace Design. The sentiment is from the set Naughty or Nice by A Muse Studio Stamps. I thought it turned out very cute.
This holiday season has been so crazy, busy. Between family illness, work, church activities, school, kids’ schedules… it has been rather hectic. I have hardly had time to create. Even with all this madness I still wanted to take time to make my holiday treats. I need co-worker treats, school party treats, youth group treats, etc, etc. It is a long list, but I love doing it. The other day when I was at the grocery I saw these new santa snack cake brownies from Little Debbie. They are so adorable. And, it is so easy just to add a cardstock topper to make them personal. I used the santa hat and sentiment from the set Naughty or Nice from A Muse Rubber Stamps. It is one of my favorite sets.
Fall has officially arrived! One of my favorite times of the year. 🙂 I always get so energized this time of year. I always have a long list of things to create, projects to get completed around the house and recipes to bake. I guess it is the old instinct to forage, harvest and store before winter sets in.
Halloween is just around the corner. I just LOVE Halloween! This is traditionally the weekend that I decorate for Halloween. I can’t wait to get out all those pumpkin and witch decorations. In preparation for my decorating frenzy this weekend I am posting a card that was made by the artists at A Muse Studio. I love this stamp set Toil and Trouble. It is cute and no too creepy. My Halloween style. 🙂 This set and many more are in the new Holiday Catalog from A Muse Studio. If you don’t have your copy yet just let me know – it’s FREE (only $3 for shipping if I have to mail it to you).
I made this darling little card last night, several in fact. I had to give one to my mama and my daughter who both adore pigs. My daughter especially loved the piggy’s earrings. I haven’t heard my mama’s comment yet as it hasn’t arrived to her yet. She’ll probably see it here first. 🙂
I used The Angel Company’s stamp set When Pigs Fly and colored it in with set A of the Copic Caboodle markers. I finally got a set LOVE them. I should have gotten them sooner. They are so versatile and the blender pen is the best.
To add the finishing touches I used ice Stickles around her glasses, self adhesive rhinestones for earrings and a Stardust Gel Pen to accent her boa.
Merry Christmas, everyone!!! I hope you all are enjoying your day with your family and thanking God for all of your blessings.
If you are taking time to stamp or craft today I wanted to show you this cute little card. It was “CASE-D” (Copy And Steal Everything) directly from The Angel Company’s Fall Magalogue, page 35. I didn’t have the exact cardstock and I changed the sentiment on the front. I wanted to show an example of how you can use what you have to remake a project that you see in a catalog or magazine or blog. Hopefully you’re copying from my blog. 🙂
Always remember that if you need a current catalog or magalog from The Angel Company I will send it to you free. Just email me your phone number and I will contact you for your shipping information… firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is another project from guest artist, Jennifer Edwards. It is a sweet and simple card, easy to make. There is minimal coloring needed for these snowmen and women. The ribbon and the touch of blue Stickles is just enough to make it “POP”. The inside message reads, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”.

It has been such a long time since I posted. The last 3 months of my life has been so hectic. But a new year is coming and I am promising to make this next year a little less chaotic and a whole lot more peaceful. Why wait for January 1st? There is no better time to start then the present. So to kick off this “new” outlook I wanted to showcase the “Peace” Christmas card I created. It is very simple and easy to make. The little added areas of crystal Stickles gives it all the pizazz it needs.
